 Tax Deadlines and Reporting an IRC §1031 Exchange

With tax deadlines occurring in March and April, it is important to remember that an IRC §1031 tax-deferred exchange must be reported on IRS Form 8824 for the year in which the property is transferred to another party in a like kind exchange. Applicable due dates for filing federal tax returns are as follows:

  • Individuals, single member LLCs and sole proprietorships – April 15th
  • Partnerships and multi-member LLCs – March 15th
  • Corporations – the 15th day of the third month after the end of the corporation’s chosen fiscal year

Form 8824 and instructions to complete Form 8824 can be found at the following IRS links:

http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f8824.pdf
http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/i8824.pdf

Finally, although most taxpayers have 180 days to complete an exchange, some taxpayers will have less time if their tax filing deadline occurs prior to the expiration of 180 days1

In order for those taxpayers to get the benefit of the full 180 days, they must submit a request for an automatic extension of time to file their return.  Individuals must file IRS Form 4868, “Application for Automatic Extension of Time To File U.S. Individual Tax Return”, in order to obtain the benefit of the full 180-day exchange period. Business entities must file IRS Form 7004, “Application for Automatic Extension of Time To File Certain Business Income Tax, Information, and Other Returns”.  These forms can be found at the following IRS links:

http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f4868.pdf
http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f7004.pdf

For more information about IRC §1031 exchanges, please visit www.orexco1031.com or call 800-738-1031.

                                                                       
1The exchange period expires on the earlier of the following two dates:

(1)    The  due date of the taxpayer’s tax return for the year in which the property sold
or
(2)    180 days after the date the taxpayer transfers the property.

Therefore, if an individual, single member LLC or sole proprietorship transferred a relinquished property on any date between October 18th, 2012 and December 31st, 2012, the due date to complete the exchange is April 15th, 2013.  If a partnership or multi-member LLC transferred a relinquished property between September 17th, 2012 and December 31st, 2012, the due date to complete the exchange is March 15th, 2013. To get the benefit of a full 180 day exchange period, taxpayers must file a request for an extension of time to file their return.
